NotesJonathan Dayton: _I think this video is probably the most derivative video that we've done, in the sense that it really is about a very particular film style that was pioneered by George Melies. It was all shot on a 70-year-old, hand-cranked camera, and we did lots of tests for that, finding the right camera and the right speed. But we shot the video the way Melies shot his films -- it was done all on stage. The main set pieces were all full scale: the giant octopus, the giant moonscape._; Valerie Faris: _Almost hasn't been done since him. I think that's why we've always loved his films and felt like it was such a cool technique: Why not do it now? We would design a whole set around one camera angle, because all the sets are two dimensional. So if you move the camera one foot to the right, you could see off the set. But some of those set pieces had blue screen elements. Like when the couple are riding on the rocket, they are shot against blue screen. But for the most part, it was like doing a theater production, old style._
